More than 60 leading figures from the boating sector attended a trip to Liverpool to see the boat show site themselves for the first time.

Figures from the marine sector including media, manufacturers and dealers attended the latest Liverpool Boat Show Seeing is Believing familiarisation trip, during which time they toured the show site by foot and on boat.

The trip received such favourable reaction that another one is being planned for early December.

Attendees commented on the uniqueness of the setting for the show after seeing for themselves the spectacular surroundings of Liverpool's historic Albert Dock complex and its closeness to the bustling retail and entertainment districts of the city.

One visitor, Paul Gelder of IPC Media, summed it up by saying: "Why didn’t anyone think of this before? It's a no-brainer!" His colleague, Nick Hopkinson, added: "Off to a great start – and looking forward to being here in April."

Sarah Norbury, of IPC Media, said: "It’s a fantastic location for a boat show" while Paul Bayliss of RYA said the Albert Dock represented a great venue with great potential, adding that he was looking forward to finding out more about how they can engage with the show.

Sailtime’s Lucie Goodwin said: "Perfect location, great backing, why wouldn’t you take part?! Looking forward to joining you," and Graham Blair of the RNLI described the setting as brilliant.
